Bromeliads bring an exotic touch to the home. Growing a bromeliad as a houseplant is easy and brings interesting texture and color to the interior garden. The unusual appearance of the bromeliad is prized for its thick foliage that grows in a natural rosette. A bromeliad plant may produce an inflorescence, or flower, whose form and color vary widely among each variety. The wide leaves are sword shaped or scoop-like and grow around a central “cup.” These plants are beautiful and brighten up any room you place them in!
